shamed into silence? I hope not. What is there to be ashamed of? I don't believe it to be the case anyways. I know for me who came here listening to more '80s than any other era, I just found that my tastes have changed the more I listen. We had a thread about this a while back and almost everyone who said their tastes changed after discovering the wonders of this place also tended to move to earlier eras. I do still listen to an '80s show now and again although mostly pre-coma with a few exceptions between '87-90 (3-29-90 will never get old for me). I used to listen through to '94 and even reviewed a bunch of '94 shows here, but now if I want a change of pace, i just end up listening to different music altogether.

If I were at the show I might consider purchasing the release, although does anyone really need reminders of JFK stadium? As Howard Cosell said when during a Monday Night Baseball game, the cameraman decided to focus on Johnny Bench sitting in the dugout picking his nose, "not a pretty site."

I don't think there is anything at all to be ashamed of. I know what I like I and wouldn't apologize for it. I wouldn't presume to speak for everyone though. All I am suggesting is that it is possible that the negativity and hostility I've noticed when this issue so frequently arises could put off people who enjoy latter day Dead. I'm not trying to turn this into some kind of issue or argument though. I guess everyone has some kind of music that makes them want to vomit up blood.

i assumed it was red wine. Cliffy likes to partake every now and again.

Not looking for an argument either, i was just surprised by the comment and I hope its not right. I think one of the things that happens here is that folks like WT and Cliff speak with such passion about the eras they like and there really hasn't been voice like that for the 80s or 90s. SDH, lobster and PatkelleyPA have in the past been good sources for info about shows from these eras but I don't ever recall here someone really match the passion that people seem to have for 68-81. Where is the post like the one Cliff made about '71 a few days back? I can't believe one like that would be met with a blood-puking response.

personally, i can only withstand so much 68>71 with Jer repeating the same pentatonic scales over and over...

what i like about the 80's is the entire spectrum of their musical development is already in place and continues to be expanded upon

we all listen for different reasons

Sugaree is played perfectly — I've mentioned this show many times

Yes thankyou

the era to era cock-measuring and bashing gets so old.
We get it already, (ten times over already) not your favorite era.

As previously mentioned there is not a large range of shows to pick from when it comes to DVD. If they had some of the early filmore runs locked away on video I would be upset too, but they don't.

Peace

Maybe Rhino can keep the ball rolling and release the 07/09/89 Monkees' Reunion Concert also.

JFK, Typical Philly Stadium. Built with the best intentions, but neglected until it was a crumbling eyesore just like Baker Bowl, Shibe Park/Connie Mack, the Vet, and even the Spectrum. At least with Franklin Field, UPenn takes care of it.

Well i can't say that I ever saw the Baker Bowl but it so true what you say. The other part is that none of them seem to have the charm that you would want to keep them around either. What charm did the Vet have? The courthouse and jail? No Fenway, Wrigley, Dodger Stadium in the whole lot. I was living in Miami until recently and while it was in terrible need of updates, the Orange Bowl was still a great place to watch a football game. I had no problems dealing with all of its inadequacies and much preferred it to Joe Robbie/Pro Player/Dolphin/Landshark/Sun Life Stadium.

Graffiti on the Baker Bowl right field wall:

THE PHILLIES USE LIFEBOUY

(Graffiti-ed below that)
and they still stink!
